Just picked up my new carry piece today (summer wear) and went to tear it down to clean and polish the feed ramp, well, I had good intentions. Pulled the slide stop out pulled the trigger, LET GO OF THE TRIGGER (my error I believe) and let the slide forward....it stopped dead about 1/4" inch from the alignment marks. I cannot get it off, the trigger now does nothing. I have Glocks, 1911's etc and have NEVER had this kind of issue. Barrel is loose, stop still out. Tried the new orange "mag" that comes with it, shook it, cussed it, can't get it to do anything. PLEASE, somebody give me an idea of what to do here. Right now I'm the proud owner of an expensive paper weight!

Question....did you drop the mag before trying to remove the slide. Can you move the slide back or is it locked up totally.

Yes, I removed the mag, Yes, I can move the slide fully to the rear. Seems to me it's catching on the trigger bar piece that moves the striker back. But I can't figure out a way to move it down.

Try lining up the alignment marks and putting the slide stop back in and cycle the slide several times. Pull the trigger and see if it dry fires, you can't hurt the gun by dry firing it. If it works go ahead and try dissambly again.

Try pulling the trigger repeatedly while bumping the slide back a little and letting it go forward . The barrel is probably not letting it go back into battery without the pin to lift it.

I don't think its you, the cms will do the same. Was a thread here awhile Back.

Yeah I just tried, the pin works!!! Just have to stick the end of it in.
You just have to have the barrel under lug lined up to insert the pin, then you can align the marks to fully insert the pin.

Thanks for jumping in there Toney. Your idea just might do the trick. I haven't come across anything like that with my Kahrs.

Guys, the barrel is loose....flopping around. The slide stops...locks up BEFORE it goes into battery. The barrel has nothing to do with it. All the way back to all the way forward to within about a quarter inch of the alignment marks, the barrel is free. it is NOT stopping the slide. It is the trigger mechanism. I took the firing pin retainer off and took out the spring and extractor. Firing pin will not come out even when I depress the firing pin block. It appears the sear is up and stopping the slide from moving forward. I have no way to move it back down. May have to go to the store for the Torx wrench small enough to take out the side plate screws. Any other ideas? I can't believe no one else has run into this.

Oh, and pulling the trigger does NOTHING.

I can make mine lock up if I mess with it, trigger goes limp and everything IMG_20130620_210820.jpg

Think getting the disconector to reset is what has to happen.

I can also pull my slide all the way to the rear the let it go forward to were it would be in battery and the trigger will reset.

Align the under lug with the hole and insert the end of the assembly pin, rack the slide, pull the trigger, then pull the pin and remove the slide.

Do as Toney said and if the trigger doesn't reset, try holding the trigger all the way back while racking the slide then release the trigger and see if it will reset
